The next time you feel like doing the "siren surrounded by dogs" gimmick, try to find dogs that actually look threatening. Rather than cuddly. I think the one on her left there actually belongs to my aunt. He loooves having his belly rubbed; aw, he's a good boy, yes he does.

They should have covers with a pile of whatever animal you chose excrament on it because that's what the music sounds like.

Vastum - it's the bat that makes the image cool. People who do not like bats are ignorant of what role bats play. Imagine a night where you cannot go out due to flying bugs everywhere. Now, go thank the bats for you not living in that world.

some of the art is really good (in my opinion) much better than I could ever draw on paper or computer. Whether or not it goes with the band or should be on pixar film. I like them, I don't listen to metal though.

@Bouncex3 Zodiac had a KILLER cover album before last and that last one is a good idea just really poorly executed

@Bouncex3, of course the dogs do not look threatening. They are relaxed with their mistress. The meanest junkyard dog is gentle and happy with its master. It is other people that the dogs would become mean towards. Idiot RFT writer knows nothing about canines.

@rusty_shackles oh yeah. I didn't notice the gentle dogs until I read the blurb. A lot of them weren't quite as bad as I was hoping.
